Think about it, it wasn't on my end, and I am a small fry, but right now Mark and his brass under him have to be shitting their pants.

Yet, you are the one who got all panicked.

Of course I was shitting my pants. I am a news junkie, I need my drug. 

But I am also not a billionaire that has obligations to advertisers. I used to work at a mom and pop radio station in central Virginia. When the station manager signs a contract from local or national businesses, they are obligated to provide that advertisement on schedule. And they know how to trace the rate of return on the airplay. My station had an occasion of dead air due to technical difficulties. Mark gets his money from other billionaires, so every minute people cannot access Facebook, that is tons of money he loses, and the advertisers lose as a result of being down.

It's happening


teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

I know. But when you are dealing in reality with nothing but positive and negative charges, and "0"s and "1"s and machine language, there are an infinite number of things that can go wrong or be misinterpreted on the internet. 

Think about it, it wasn't on my end, and I am a small fry, but right now Mark and his brass under him have to be shitting their pants.

All of that’s got nothing to do with it. If you can log into Twitter and access Google, your computer and internet are working just fine. If you can access those two but not Facebook, your computer and internet connection are still working just fine.

Think about it - you logged into this forum wondering if something was amiss with how you access the internet.

Facebook is down. How many times do you need to be told this?
